Madagascar: Andry Rajoelina's party calls for an early presidential election following the rejection of the disqualification of the president

While the High Constitutional Court (HCC) of Madagascar on Saturday has completely rejected the disqualification of the president Hery Rajaonarimampianina voted by deputies on 26 May, the MAPAR * party of the former President of the Transition, Andry Rajoelina, has strongly regretted such a decision and calls for an early presidential election.
"The solution to the Madagascar issue now is to seek the opinion of the people through an early presidential election," said Augustin Andriamananoro vice president of the Mapar. The spokesman of the Mapar Pierre Houlder, also stressed on his side that "the decision of the High Constitutional Court is ridiculous."
* MAPAR: The abbreviation stands for "With President Andry Rajoelina"
